DAM-05B Two Civilians loading and firing
The following sets are ideal as “Wagoneers” to accompany any of the French & Indian War Wagons and carts, as well as accompanying the regular troops at the Battle of Bushy Run.
The series will also attempt to cover probably the most significant battle of the American Revolution.
The militia/frontiersman spirit derives from an early American dependence on arms to protect themselves from foreign armies and hostile Native Americans. Survival depended upon everyone being capable of using a weapon. Prior to the American Revolution there was neither budget nor manpower nor government desire to maintain a full-time army. Therefore, the armed citizen-soldier carried the responsibility. Service in militia, including providing one’s own ammunition and weapons, was mandatory for all men.
